The evening also promises appearances by Alfred Molina, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, Elias Koteas, Viggo Mortensen, Aidan Quinn, Gloria Reuben and Debra Winger. David Esbjornson will direct. Dorfman adapted the staged reading from Kerry Kennedy's book of the same title. Kennedy, the Public and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights present the one-night-only 7 PM event. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity's earthquake relief efforts in Chile.

According to the Public, "Speak Truth to Power chronicles the true-story accounts of heroic people withstanding horrific human rights abuses across the globe. Voices from around the world cry out against violence and oppression — from world leaders like Desmond Tutu to the unknown activists working on the ground level. Speak Truth to Power is a powerful and moving testimony of the will of the human spirit to rise up against injustice, even in the face of incredible darkness."
